Like a Moth to a Flame

Lighten the mood with candles from Boy Smells.

The downside of staying at your boyfriend's place: maneuvering the less-than-sparkly bathroom and finding the cause of that unidentifiable man aroma.

Make one of those struggles easier with candles from Boy Smells. The yummy smelling line, created by Texan Matthew Herman, is now available in Dallas. Herman blends beeswax and coconut wax with studly scents, then pours them into glossy black tumblers for macho style and fragrance. The scents come in floral, fruity, herbal and woody, so there's an essence for every male or female nose. Brighten up the air with PRUNUS, a lusty blend of vanilla, fig and yuzu, or ignite something woodsier with ASH, a smoky mix of firewood, charcoal and palo santo.

Breathe easy... then let go of your fear to inhale.

Available locally at TENOVERSIX.
